    Ok the size of the tires on the maverick on rear are 27x11x12 but they do not have that size in any paddle. I see most of you are running 25.5x13x12. Because of the size difference should you run blades on the front or does that make a difference?

    I have ran paddles just on the back and ran my BH 2.0's on the front. Knobbies of the front are a little heavier but also provide better pull when in 4WD.

    my concerns is the paddles in back will be small then the front if I only run paddles on back. Will that make a differance?

    Thank you.

    You won't notice that 1" difference in tire size. most off road cars are set up with the rear a little lower than the front. It will corner a little better.

    If you have power steering I would NOT suggest anything but a buffed tire.
